Client Testimonials

As first time home buyers we had no idea what we were doing. From our first visit with Rich and MJ we knew we had chosen the right team to help us. Rich's experience showed - he listened to our needs and wants but also brought up many other aspects of choosing a home that we hadn't considered, then helped us narrow down what was truly important. His knowledge of various aspects of construction allowed him to answer all our questions. During our walk-throughs he was able to determine what work might be needed and what was cosmetic. He negotiated deftly during the offer process and protected us every step of the way (and I really can't stress that enough). He educated us patiently on the legal and practical process and made it transparent by including us in his communications so we were always informed. They were efficient and quick to respond when we needed anything. They were also able to give a host of referrals for reputable vendors to help us get started. I can't say enough about the Starry team. For them, it is clearly not about the commission. They really enjoy what they are doing and really know what they are doing. If you are looking to buy or sell property, especially if you are not experienced, they will take great care of you.

Selling my mother's house seemed like an overwhelming task, but Starry Realty made it so easy! Rich and Mary Jo helped get the house listed and we received an offer within 24 hours. I was promptly informed of any changes or potential delays, but every effort was made to close the sale on time. I cannot thank Rich and Mary Jo enough for their patience, efficiency and professionalism! I highly recommend Starry Realty to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
– Betsy Albers
Selling my house and moving to an apartment seemed a daunting prospect. I will be forever grateful that I chose Starry Realty to guide me through the entire process. I very much appreciated their professionalism and expertise, and their willingness to work with me at all times. Edda
– Edda Quigley
We really enjoyed working with the Starrys team! Their expertise and professionalism makes the house buying and selling process much easier.
– Kira Shockley
Upon our first meeting with Rich, he was very straight forward and honest about what would need to be done to prepare our house for listing. Everything happened just as we were told it would, and moved much quicker than we expected. Mary Jo and Rich were incredibly responsive to all our questions, and so patient with us. I would definitely recommend the Starry's to anyone looking to sell their home. We are so thankful to the Starry's for their expertise and guidance along this journey.
– Rick and Judy Teune
I would recommend The Starrys to anyone. From the moment we met, I felt comfortable and confident that my property would sell. Rich made me feel that he would watch out for me and ensure that I got the best price. Showing notifications were easy and quick with the mobile app. The whole experience was great! Thank you to your team for everything.
– Connie VanDyke
When I came to Green Bay eight years ago I had the pleasure of connecting with Rich and he spent countless hours with me finding my perfect first home. Even though I had thought I wanted a new build as I am a single person who knows little about fixing a home, he took me to a bunch of different homes and I ended up finding the perfect place to call home. When my work situation changed abruptly and I knew I had to sell there was no doubt in my mind that I would rely on Rich. He was super responsive, helping me to organize my thoughts and my home, giving me tips on wall color and minimalist staging. He was always available for any questions or concerns I had. MJ also is such a bright and cheery addition to the team and super quick with getting all the little details handled! My home sold quickly and I am sad to say that for now my interaction with the Starry realty team is over! I recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell. Excellent service with a smile!
– Tamara Lyday
We can't thank you enough for the help in selling our home. We purchased our home from Rich a few years ago,so we decided to give Rich a call on a Friday to say we were interested in selling, but weren't sure what we could list it for. He gave us a round about number and said he had a buyer coming in from out of state the next morning. So we set to tidying up our home and Rich showed it the next morning. By that afternoon we had an offer that we accepted and we were in our new dwelling in 18 days. Needless to say Rich and his team know his buyers, sellers and the area so well that this was made possible. Thank you all so much for another great experience
– Kim and Bob Erdahl
We lived in Saint Paul, Minnesota and looking to move to the Green Bay area. At the time we were looking the market was very short on inventory. We had a good idea what we were looking for. Rich heard exactly what we were saying and when we deviated when there wasn't any homes available Rich stayed on track. Rich went above and beyond and found us a home that perfectly met our profile. And the home was yet to be listed. The Starrys and their staff know the market extremely well and can deliver exactly what you are looking for. This is a six out of five star recommendation.
– Mike Berns
Being a first time own buyer can be a little intimidating but the Starry team made the process very smooth and simple. Rich and Mary Jo were able to answer questions we had within minutes which was fantastic. We were on a bit of a tight schedule to find a house and everyone at Starrys made sure we found the perfect home. Extremely happy with our home and would recommend The Starrys to anyone!
– Tim Scanlan and Deanna DeGrand
We loved working with The Starrys. Rich was extremely helpful in finding us the right home. This was made all the more difficult with us being 5 hours away! We clearly would recommend the Starrys!
– Howard & Patricia Hauser
We had a great experience working with The Starry's team. Rich and Mary Jo were very prompt with responding to any questions we had. They were professional, always kept us informed, and gave us great advice and recommendations. They made the experience of buying and selling a house run smoothly. We are happy to recommend The Starry's to others!
– Nate and Kristy Painter
Communication is essential when going through the stress of moving or selling a home. The Starry's did an amazing job of maintaining consistent and frequent contact. Rich is truly always working to ensure the details are addressed. At no time did we feel disconnected or neglected. It is difficult to find this kind of service anywhere……
– Shawn and Moira Green
We cannot say enough excellent things about Rich and his team. Every phone call, every text and every time we stopped in we felt welcomed. At our first meeting, we told Rich exactly what we wanted in a new home and he never forgot. Out new home and neighborhood is very friendly and a great location. His advice was always sound, honest and professional. We lived in our home for 38 years and he helped make the transition to a new home very slick. The staff is small, but you would never know it. We would never ever have wanted a different real estate company. Many times we have said to each other 'I absolutely LOVE this house'. A huge thank you to Rich and The Starry Team.
– Chuck and Kathy Toonen
It has been a very good experience working with The Starrys. Rich has been helpful right from when we were corresponding from Watertown before our 1st to Green Bay. They were responsive to our thoughts and wishes while scouting for houses. They have been professional and we have been very happy with the other services they have referred us to. We will be most happy to recommend them going forward. Thanks very much for all the help. '
– Dr Rekha Vijayan
It has been a great pleasure working with Rich and his team . Even though we were out of state Rich made it very easy for us. He responds to email very quickly. Bellin has guided us in the right direction . Rich had the resources and it worked well. The mortgage consult Mark was great as well. I would have no hesitations to refer your (Smart) team to people who may need your services in future .
– Dhanvendran Ramar & Rekha Vijayan
Working with rich and his great staff was very satisfying compared with others in that field. We had a situation of having two homes to sell. Both homes sold extremely quick, with our home selling in less than 18 hrs. So with a great company and the marketing tools at our disposal, I would say we are very happy with Rich and his staff. Thanks again everyone.
– Jerry and Lisa Baeten
The Starry's helped us find the perfect first home! Being new to this process, Katie and Rich were great to work with. They helped us understand each step of the way, were prompt to answer our many questions, were patient as they helped us find what we were looking for, and made house hunting enjoyable. We would recommend the Starry's to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!
– Brian and Rachel Sagrillo
Thank you Katie and Team for a great home buying experience! Being first time home owners, we knew little about what we wanted in a home when we first started looking. Not only was Katie very patient, she gave us great advice on what to prioritize when buying a home. One of our favorite things about Katie was that she was always available, even on very short notice. Thanks to Katie and the rest of the team at Starry we found our perfect house.
– Amanda Wolske and Thor Nothstine
'Thank you Rich, Katie, and the entire Starry Team! You took the stress out of selling our first home and finding a new home that met our needs and then some. We appreciate all of your expertise and professional opinions throughout the process. We also want to thank you for including our son in the process and making it fun for him. He is still talking about it!'
– The Suehring Family
The team at Starry Realty are superior in their efforts. They sold my home in one day and made the entire process from start to closing on my home easy for me. The Starry team is reputable, personable, honest and respectful. They get my recommendation.
– Heather Smith
I worked with The Starrys to sell my rental home recently. A friend of mine had worked with them and sold his home and he recommended them. I received a full price offer on the 5th day the home was listed. From the initial meeting I could tell they were very professional. From giving ideas to improve the homes appearance, to the pictures they had taken for the many on line listings they did. Communication was excellent and timely. I would highly recommend them. I will use them again in the future when I am ready to sell my primary residence.
– Chris Nemetz
Katie & the Starry Team were great to work with. We recently worked with them on purchasing some investment property. Making a purchase of this type can be difficult. You are not only dealing with the owner but with tenants also. The Starry Team was excellent on all communication, both with details and responding in a timely fashion. We look forward to our next real estate adventure with the Starry Team!
– Kevin & Karen Guns
Rich and his team did a very good job assisting us in selling my house. It was a challenge as the house was an older home in need of work. The work was completed and it sold to a nice couple. I think all parties involved were happy with the sale. Thanks again Rich and team!
– Matt and Steve Goethe
My first time home buying experience was wonderful thanks to the team at Starry Realty. Katie helped me find the right home, in the right neighborhood, at the right price for me. She was always accessible every step of the way and never left me questioning what would come next. She recommended a great home inspector and was there to answer any questions that popped up. I would and will recommend Katie and the Starry Team to anyone in the market to buy or sell a home. She made the entire process stress-free and I couldn't be happier in my new home.
– MacKenzie Hazen
Rich and the crew at The Starrys were nothing short of wonderful. We had an accepted offer on another home and needed to get our home sold as soon as possible. The Starrys team took over and was able to get it listed and sold the day after listing. This was our first home sale and we had a lot of questions. Everyone was available at any time of day and the responses were almost immediate. They made a very stressful time go very smoothly and painless. Thank you so much to all of you!
– Brian and Kristen Hanson
A big thanks to Rich, Becki, MJ and Katie! Working with The Starry team made our home buying process very easy and enjoyable. They were able to help get us into homes right away to get a jump on other buyers and we were able to get the home we wanted very quickly in a busy market. We would highly recommend The Starry team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. We were very impressed with their professional, yet fun approach. Thank you!
– Stew and Stacie Koskinen
Thank you again, Rich Starry and Team for a wonderful experience when selling our home. You were professional, knowledgeable, and caring as you kept us well-informed throughout the process. Your hard work sold our house and adjoining lot in just 4 days, a pleasant surprise for us and our family.
– Henry & Mary Rahr
Selling our home was painless! The Starry Team did an outstanding job and we are very happy that they went through this process with us. We appreciated the professionalism and friendliness from Rich, Becki, Mary Jo, and Katie. We are lucky to have The Starrys in our neighborhood. Thank you!
– Kurt and Jane Lyon
As things are finally starting to settle down over in Minnesota, we finally have some time to express our gratitude for all of your help in selling our home in Suamico. If there was only one thing I could focus on in saying thanks this would be easy, but since you all made the entire selling process so simple, I feel like I'd be leaving something out by naming everything. But from the first time Rich came over to discuss the selling process to the seamless close, everything went as you all said it would. Being that we were also in the midst of trying to buy out of state, having the sale go so smoothly took a lot of stress off our plate as we knew we were in good hands. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the entire Starry klan to anyone in the Green Bay area either looking to sell or looking to buy. Having now been on both sides of the equation, buying and selling with you guys, we want to express our gratitude for not only the advice and ability to get things done quickly, but also the laughs.
– Darin & Toni Westphal
I would recommend the Starrys to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. From the moment we first walked into their office to after closing on our new home, we were very impressed with the whole Starry team. They have a very laid back atmosphere that made us feel comfortable, but they were still very professional. This was our first time buying a house but Rich and Katie put us at ease and answered all our questions. They made the process easy and fun. We'll definitely be giving the team a call down the road when it's time to sell!
– Amber Bassett and Brian Ristow
We have bought and sold a number of homes and working with the Starry's was the best experience yet. Katie, Rich, Becki and Mary Jo are true professionals. They understood what type of home we were looking for and made the home buying experience go very smoothly. They kept us informed throughout the process and answered our questions. Then they listed our home and the day they put up the 'For Sale' sign it said SOLD. We would highly recommend the Starry's to anyone buying or selling their home. They are the BEST!
– Lisa and Keith Vanden Avond
Our experience with Rich was stellar from beginning to end. I'm so happy he was the one to help us find our new home. I'd say it took him a grand total of five minutes to figure us out as a couple, and intuit what we needed, as well as what sort of house would catch our attention. And it was such a comfortable, relaxed situation throughout; we felt like we'd made a friend by the end of the sale. Of course, we plan to work with you again in the very near future as soon as our former house is ready to sell in the next couple of weeks. I honestly don't think anyone could've done a better transaction, and we value his experience and input. You're all such a thorough, but warm, bunch that it's been a pleasure working with you. Oh, and our door mat was such a thoughtful touch!
– Lance & Yolanda Czachor
A million thanks to each of you for helping us find our house! You all are a blast to work with!! The support of you all as a team made the process of selling and buying easy! It was a crazy ride that I am so happy we had the Starrys along for!!
– Miranda Bonde
In my first home buying experience, it was a pleasure to have two no nonsense realtors on my side. I wanted to move quickly and they helped me do just that. All of my friends will be looking to The Starrys when it's their turn to buy or sell.
– Joe Vanden Avond
I found my experience with the Starrys to be one word...EASY! It was truly a very seamless process. From having the right experience as a real estate agent to know just how to word the offer to ensure the best chance of acceptance, to the endless words of wisdom on home buying, Rich was awesome to work with. And I'm not sure I have ever met someone as kind and welcoming as Becki, thank you for making me feel right at home on closing day and for taking care of all the behind-the-scenes paperwork and such. You guys went out of your way to meet and exceed my needs. Thank you again for all your help! We are loving our new home and couldn't have done it without you guys!
– Hannah Smits
Our real estate experience with THE STARRY'S was amazing. Everything went so extremely smooth. Our phone calls, emails and texts were answered within minutes which was impressive considering how busy you all are. We absolutely love it here!! I would never have imagined we would be in this neighborhood, this would not have been possible if we did not work with THE STARRY'S!! We have told many friends, coworkers etc... how fabulous it was working with all of you. We want to thank you very, very much for making our home owners dream a reality!
– John & Kris Zovnic
Excellent help with how a home should look before showing. Professional photographer to enhance property online. Help with home value. Great system for booking home showings. Never had so many showings in such a short time. Very good experience. Fast sale of home with least amount of stress!
– Leon Mills and Jeanne Richter
Rich and the entire staff at Starrys did a wonderful job for us. We had a full price accepted offer on the sale of our townhouse within 72 hours of listing the property. We recommend Starry to anyone interested in buying or selling. Through the entire process from start to finish the Starry team was extremely thorough and professional.
– Tony and Genny Hoes
Great team! Well known and respected in the business, other agencies know, respect and respond to their sales. These pros are local residents, well informed, updated to the markets, knowing the area, market values and trends. Rich is a no nonsense, direct, knowledgeable professional, Becki, a very intelligent, soft spoken expert, supportive, warm, and inviting. Mary Jo, an efficient, clear communication expert. All together, a smooth transaction through the anxiety of the moving experience.
– Ann Rockhill
I have had 20 homes in my life. I heard about Rich from my son who was selling his house with Rich. I could not believe how much action he had - so many people going through his house. It sold in like 3 weeks and it was not a popular location or layout. I had been using the same realtor for years and was satisfied. I did go with Rich because I was amazed with the results my son had. I felt bad switching because I am very loyal. I also had an unpopular layout with my house. I could not believe the traffic and we had a buyer in a month. The price was more than I thought I would get.
– Sam & Jean Johnson
Never having experience in selling a house, we decided to go with the locals. Rich was honest, upfront and extremely knowledgeable in his job. He got my house sold in 1 day... He made this process so easy for us and truly treated us like family as well as his only client. Rich is 100% trustworthy and great to work with. Truly an absolute pleasure to do business with!!
– Sarah Jacques
I met Becki Starry about five years ago at a showing on a prior house I sold in Allouez. I remember her warm smile, and kindness and thought if I ever sell a house again I am contacting the' Starry Team'. I can't thank Rich, Becki and Mary Jo enough for their professionalism, commitment, great electronic services to ease the contracts, sharing ideas and the valuable insight on prepping a house for sale. They provided great detail, timely message return services with constructive feedback (Rich's analogies) which resulted in the best news I could receive, 'We have an offer and we sold your house!' I would highly recommend the 'Starry Team' to anyone buying or selling a property in the future.
– Brenda Wiegert
Serendipity...that's how it felt when we saw The Starrys sign in front of a house we loved! Rich met us within a matter of hours and with his help, had an accepted offer within 48 hours! Rich, Becki & Mary Jo made everything so easy, from working with Tim Oliver @ Associated Bank right to the closing. After our buying experience with Starry Realty, we're now ready to list our existing home with them as well. Great experience and highly recommend Starry Realty!
– Tony & Gen Hoes
Recently I had the opportunity to list my condo with Rich Starry at Starry realty. I was tremendously happy with everyone there. Rich, Becky, and Mary Jo were always there to answer my questions and concerns. Call Starry Realty for the next sale of your home you won't be disappointed. Thanks everyone!!!
– Marlene Schadrie
All we can say is THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. Having no experience in real estate, we looked up this local office as a 'well, here goes nothing', when we were looking to put our house on the market. Right from the start Rich was extremely knowledgeable and honest. We greatly appreciated everything all of the Starry's group did for us. 1 day to sell our house. I never would have imagined it would be so easy. Your knowledge of the De Pere area is amazing. Rich and Becki truly treat you like family in everything they do... Thank you so much for making it such a breeze to sell our home!!!
– Dean & Sarah Jacques
I am glad Matt Waterstradt had highly recommended that I get it touch Rich when I started to look into buying a home in Green Bay. From the first time I met Rich right until the end, everything went smooth. As a first-time home buyer I didn't know what to expect but Rich and the rest of the team made it an easy process. I told Rich the area I really liked and I don't think he could have found me a better home. I'm extremely satisfied with everybody at The Starrys and will recommend you guys to anybody looking for a realtor. Thanks again for everything and I'm excited about my new place in Green Bay!
– Brad Daniels
One year ago, (November 7th) we purchased and moved into our home on Robin St. Thank you so much for helping us find & purchase our first home. We love it and all the memories we are making here. We loved working with you and couldn't have asked for a better 1st time home buying experience. Thank you!
– Ryan & Stephanie Remondini
Rich, Becki and Mary Jo, Thank you for the wonderful job you did selling the house for me. The house sold much faster than I thought possible and throughout the process you were all great in keeping me informed etc. I will not hesitate in recommending you to others. It is such a relief to have the process taken care of so quickly. It is good too have met you all and I feel that you are a valuable asset to the De Pere Business Community. Thanks again!
– Sheila Patel
Rich, I found your approach to the real estate business we just concluded to be thoughtful, carefully researched and most particularly enthusiastic. But even more important, your knowledge of the market in De Pere and its surroundings to be right on the money in every category that concerned me: pricing, potential customer/s, patience, advertising, as well as tips on preparing the house for sale. Plus your office itself is an absolute winner not only in terms of location but the layout and design-- I don't see how it could not be a positive force for any potential clients. Of course the human element is the critical component and you, Becky and Mary Jo are a marvelous team, it was a pleasure doing business with you all. Thanks for making the whole process of closing so smooth. Thank you! Adrian
– Adrian Bennett
I am not sure exactly how Rich and Becki did it but they made me feel like I was their only client. They were both quick to respond and were in constant communication on the sale of our house and make a great team. I don't give recommendations very easily or often but in this case I would highly recommend the Starry team for your real estate needs.
– Scott & Rose David
Just a quick note to let you know how pleased we were with the whole experience of listing/selling our house through The Starrys. Every aspect was handled in a straight forward manner. Every question was answered in a considered and concise way. All of our contacts were pleasant and helpful. We thank you once again and wish you the best!
– Michael Brown & Jill Harding
The Starry Team was incredibly helpful during our entire selling and buying process. Rich listed the house to be sold on a Friday and by Monday morning we had an accepted offer. Within a week or two of selling, Rich had helped us find the home of our dreams. We were disappointed to find out that there was already an offer on the table for the house we wanted to buy but Rich helped us through the process of putting in an offer secondary to the first accepted offer and after a week of nervously waiting, we found out that the first buyer's offer fell through and ours was accepted. We've been in our new home for just over a week now and we couldn't be happier. After seeing how the realtor for the house we bought operated (slow to respond and unprofessional) we were so happy that we had the Starry Team on our side. They did everything they could to make sure the entire process went smoothly. Many Thanks!
– DJ Rein & Jessica LeMere
Buying and selling a house can be a scary process. It was important to me to find an expert I could trust! Rich was clearly credible and created an immediate sense of confidence and ease. I felt like I had a friend and advocate working on this amazing adventure with me. I'm pretty sure he was lining up potential buyers before we got the house officially on the market. I listed on a Friday and sold by Saturday at full price. He had even anticipated my needs and negotiated an extended close date before I asked for it! Becki was always available for questions, and I had many. The actual closing was a celebration rather than the dry paperwork signing I've done in the past. I will definitely use Starry Realty again in the future and strongly recommend them to my friends, family and all of you.
– Angela Schuchart
The Starry Team helped us sell our old home and buy our new home. Sold our home in 5 days!! We were very happy with how everything worked out and would highly recommend them. Thank You Rich Becki and MJ
– Peter & Carrie Baeten
I would highly recommend The Starrys. My home sold faster then I expected, Rich knows what he is talking about. The whole process was fast and easy thanks to the team.
– Amy Beining
We knew that when we decided to sell our home their was no one else that we would have listed through. Rich and Becki are the most knowledgeable and friendly people we have ever meet. They were always upfront and honest about the highs and the lows for selling and always got back to us with any questions we had right away. They made this transition in our life easier and almost pain free! We had Rich come in months before we listed to find out what we needed to do to get ready to put our house on the market. He came in and gave us some helpful ideas to make this easy on us. He made us better prepared for an easy process and in the long run a much easier move. I can't forget to tell you about Becki. Becki is the most amazing lady ever! She is the sweetest woman I have ever meet. She too has lots of knowledge and she will always have the biggest smile on her face every time she sees you. She will always hold a special place in my heart. She is always professional and always knows just what you need before you do. Weather you need to meet for coffee or a drink to unwind she is there. She also gives great advice and makes sure all the i's are dotted and the t's are crossed. Thank you Rich and Becki for all you do. You two are a GREAT pair and I will always be thankful for meeting you both.
– Hope Brown
Rich is a rockstar. From the first meeting to the closing date Rich and his team were prepared, organized and armed with the appropriate information to help me understand the market, evaluate options and make informed decisions. My sale closed at near full price just 60 days after I signed the listing agreement.
– Jason Tadych
Rich listed our home for sale in Ledgeview/De Pere, WI. He offered excellent service and responsiveness to any questions we had about the process of selling our home. His team was on top of every detail for listing to marketing and closing of our home. Following the sale of our home, we worked with him on purchasing an home in the area and that process went as smoothly as the sale of our previous one. I have and would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking in all price ranges and locations in our area.
– Paul DeLeeuw
I'm just taking a break from removing wallpaper and wanted to say thank you for all your help in helping Dave and I find our new home. Dave keeps saying how much he loves the house and thanking me for finding it. The credit goes to the Starry Team! Your knowledge of the area and market got us into the house and your support and kindness got us through the process of buying our first home. We loved working with you and sincerely appreciate everything!
– Stacey & Dave Murphy
Rich Starry and his mother Becki Starry were simply fantastic!!!! They were both very detailed to ensure nothing was missed or done incorrectly. Rich was always thinking about new ways to improve visibility of the house. Selling my house with the Starry's was the best experience I have ever had with a realtor. Also, we purchased our new home through the Starry's and that went flawlessly!!! I am telling all my friends about the Starry's, they are the only real-estate agents I would ever consider in Northern Wisconsin!
– Keith & Nancy Panuce
I have purchased and sold with Rich and his team a few times over the years and each experience has been great! Rich is very attentive and quickly learns what his clients want in a house. He provides feedback during walk throughs of potential new homes, while refraining from giving any bias opinions in either direction. His honest approach to pricing a house for sale is refreshing and creates traffic so the house sells itself. He and his team make the process clear, easy, and manageable. They also share in the excitement of buying and selling, because of the personal connection they make with their clients. I ALWAYS recommend The Starrys!
– Molly O'Neill
Rich assisted me throughout the whole process. I appreciated his expertise and honesty with what I need to do with selling my property and what to expect. He told me the pros and cons about price points and what to expect from potential buyers and time frames with selling prices. The process was easy and I experienced no headaches with it which was the direct result of Rich's knowledge and assistance during the entire process. I would without a doubt list any home I own with him and recommend him to anyone. Thanks Rich!!!!!
– Kevin LaPointe
Rich has actually helped us to buy and sell a house; the same house, in fact, 5 years apart. In both sides of the transaction we found him to be knowledgeable and assertive. When we were buying, he got us in to see a house that was no longer on the market and then assisted us in buying it when we loved it. Five years later, he brought exactly the right buyer to see our house when we needed to sell it. The offer was made and accepted before the listing hit the market. In both cases, he was more or less representing both parties, so if there was perceived room for improvement in negotiation it's understandable. I'd work with Rich and his staff at The Starrys again anytime.
– Jim & Bridget Leenstra
As a first time home-buyer, I wanted a Realtor who would simply get the job done. Rich was recommended to me by my brother, who had great success in finding a home through Starry Realty. From the start, I knew what type of house I was looking for. After a quick sit down with Rich, he cut right to the chase and starting searching for houses that would fit all of my needs. Rich did not force any houses on me or try to convince me to buy a house just for the sake of a sale. He knew what I wanted and was not going to stop until he found the perfect house for me. Rich was always easy to contact, and made himself available at all times of the day. He promptly answered any questions that I had and gave me advice where he saw fit. Through his hard work and expertise, the process only took a few weeks. I can't thank Rich and Starry Realty enough for finding me the perfect house. For anyone looking to buy or sell a house, look no further than Starry Realty. They simply get the job done.
– Chris Hockers
Just wanted to thank you for the professional job you did selling our property on Mitchell Street. Everything you did far exceeded all expectations. We would recommend Starry Realty to anyone in the market to sell or purchase. It was great the way you were always in contact with us by phone, e-mail or text to keep us informed of everything every step of the way. We will be telling everyone how good Starry Realty is.
– Bernie & Chris Erickson
As first time homebuyers in De Pere, we wanted someone who knew the city and the market well. Rich was recommended to us from several local sources, so we didn't hesitate to call him. We were impressed from the start with the personal and straightforward relationship that formed. Rich was always candid with us and answered our questions truthfully - we never felt pressed to settle. He clearly understood what we were looking for in our first home and was able to show us the perfect place a few days before it even hit the market. The whole process went smoothly from start to finish, and we're grateful to Rich and Becki for making our first real estate experience a good one
– -Leah Everson & Cody Vatland
Rich combines unique and instinctive real estate analysis, with a big personality and commitment to his clients. He and his team have built a highly successful company, resulting in many demands on Rich's time. Nevertheless, when he's working with his clients, he keeps those demands at bay, and provides his complete focus on their needs. He has earned my respect through his integrity, responsiveness and, most importantly, his results. You'll enjoy working with Rich, and he'll deliver.'

Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed working with you in finding our new home. Rich took the time to listen to what we wanted and didn't waste anybody's time by giving us information on or showing us homes that didn't match our needs. Closing was fast and easy and done right at the office in De Pere. Even the office is in a great location and is beautiful inside. Not your typical real estate office. The fresh bread smells amazing! We had a bad experience with another agency/agent and The Starrys restored our faith in using a real estate agency. We would highly recommend The Starrys to anyone looking for a new home. Thank you Becki and Rich for a great experience! We love our new home!
– Charidy & Eric Anderson
Who knew that selling your home, and then buying your next house could be so easy? We certainly did not, until we had our home selling consultation with Rich. Upon entering our home, Rich provided us with a fast-tracked course on 'Home Selling 101.' He shared simple strategies, which would prepare our house to be the most competitive house in our market range and area. Additionally, at our consultation Rich was straight forward and honest with us. He treated our home with the type of dignity we were hoping our selling agent would. He recognized our hard work to prepare it, but was also forthright in sharing the facts with us. By sticking to Rich's home selling strategies, we had private showings within days of our listing hitting the MLS super highway. Even better, we had multiple offers on the table within the first week. On day 10, our house was sold for more than asking price, largely due to the skillful work Rich put in with offers on the table and time ticking away. Throughout the entire selling process, Rich incorporated various home selling apps which allowed us to literally sell our house using our cell phones. One app allowed us to view scheduled home showings. The other created electronic contracts, which allowed us to literally sell our house using our cell phones. Rich's tech savvy approach to selling our home had to have sped up the entire process by at least a full week. Plus, it further proved that Rich goes out of his way to make the selling process as easy as a click of the button. Right after our house sold, Rich introduced us to his wonderful associate (and mother) Becki Starry. The two of them got to work in assisting us with finding our dream home. Both knew that in our fortunate situation, we did not feel like we had to move into a home instantly. However, that did not stop them from calling or texting us when they thought they had found a property that our family would fall in love with. When the time finally came to make an offer on a home for our family, Rich and Becki immediately got to work with the listing agent involved with the property to get the job done fast and easy. Because of Rich and Becki's home selling and buying prowess, our family was able to move into our forever home; which we now enjoy more than we could have ever imagined. We owe much of the pride we have in our family home to The Starry's. We already have, and will continue to recommend The Starry's to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. The level of professionalism that both Rich and Becki Starry maintained throughout the entire experience cannot be matched. They treated us like we their most valuable client, and they shared in the excitement of the process right along with us. There is no doubt in our mind that they do, and will do, the same for all of their clients.
– Chris & Ashley Hendricks
Rod and I want to express our thanks for everything you've done. We've appreciated your wise counsel, honesty, integrity, warmth, and clear communication. You've done a tremendous amount to welcome us to WI and to smooth our transition from SC. We LOVE our new home! Thank you.
– Rod & Deb Weaver
'Working with Rich and Becki Starry was an absolute blessing! We needed to sell our old home and buy a new home and they made the process for both very simple. We appreciated being able to use cell phone technology for our showings and they conveniently worked around our schedules. The Starry's know the market and neighborhood very well and were able to line up several buyers right away. We had an accepted offer in days after it went on the market. Working with the Starry's was the best decision we could have made. It was a truly enjoyable experience and we would recommend them to anyone.'
– Dan and Sadie LaJoe
The Starrys were highly recommended to me. Rich and the rest of the staff were so nice to work with. They were so friendly and bottom line I told Rich I wanted to me in my new place in 60 days and he made it happen. I am one happy camper! Thank You Starrys. I would recommend them to anyone !
– Marlene Kettner
Our family could not have been more pleased with the professional yet personal service we received from the Starrys in the listing and selling of our father's home. We especially appreciated the kindness and understanding shown to him at this difficult transition in his life. Beginning with the beneficial recommendations to use a home inspector early in the process, suggestions on contact people for repairs and ending with a timely follow-up and closing, we were kept informed daily of any progress. Thank you, Rich and Becki!
– The William Jauquet Family
When we were first starting the home-buying process, we were literally clueless as to where we should even begin. We turned to the Starrys for help hoping that they could answer any questions and concerns that we had. From the very beginning, Rich Starry was welcoming and very helpful in guiding us through this journey. He made a point to have an understanding of our needs and wants for our first home and showed us many houses over the months that met many of our needs. The back and forth communication that we had went above and beyond our expectations; Rich made sure that we were right there with him in the step-by-step process, informing us about anything and everything. When we finally found 'the one', Rich made the offer, inspection, and closing process practically stress-free for us. Not only was Rich our realtor but he has also become a friend, checking in to see how the move in process was going and how we were adjusting. We couldn’t have asked for a better first experience and a better realtor. We can’t thank you enough, Rich, for all you have done for us!
– Tyler & Laura DeBouche
Thanks for your good advice and patience with us selling our house. We really enjoyed working with you and will recommend you to all our friends.
– Steve & Cheri Delaney
Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how much we appreciate all the effort and hard work you both put into selling Mom's house. First and foremost you both have fantastic 'people skills'. Your ability to take a negative situation or comment and turn it into a positive or at least a learning experience is fantastic. Your research to make sure both the seller and the buyer feel the price and condition are the correct fit is right on. The way you keep the sellers well informed with the use of personal contact and the latest technology is perfect. It kept our whole family well informed on a weekly basis young and old. Thanks again and the best of luck to you both in the future.
– Jim Rintelman
I just wanted to thank you both again for everything you have done to help us find a home here in GB. We are both thrilled about our new digs. As I said today, this was the easiest home purchase/ close that I've ever experienced. That was due in large part to the two of you and your attention to detail. Throughout this process I felt like you listened to what we wanted and kept our needs and desires at the forefront of all that you did for us. I cannot thank you enough. You are the best!
– Donna Boehm
Now that the 'dust is settled' on my house sale, we just wanted to thank both of you for the great job you did in selling my home! Not only were you able to get us our full asking price in 4 days, you handled the contractors for needed repairs and kept us continually informed throughout the entire selling process. We really appreciate how well you run your business and the concern you show for your customers. Your efforts made us feel like this was the only house you were selling & made this entire experience much more pleasant than we anticipated - WELL DONE!
– Delores Knier
As recent newlyweds and ready for our first house we decided to give Rich a chance. Not only did he guide us every step of the way, he made the process educational and fun. We are truly grateful for all the hard work the Starry's did for us. He gave great advice and because of it we got our perfect first home! Thanks again!
– Thomas and Angie Hertel
“Praise to the Starry’s for all they did to help us get into our dream home! Six months ago we never thought we would be able to get a loan and into a house and now we are living our dream. Not only did they walk us through the home buying process step by step but they got us in touch with a Financial Advisor that was willing to work with us and get us the best possible loan that fits our family. From start to finish the process was explained thoroughly and we never felt like we didn’t know what was going on. Two people have never worked so hard to make our dreams come true-thank you to Rich and Becki-we truly are living our dreams!”
– Kristy Kabara
Our move in late September 2012 was particularly difficult given less-than-ideal timing (the coming winter) and distance (five hours away in Minneapolis), but Becki and Rich provided wonderful professional and personal support throughout the process. Their extensive knowledge of our Allouez neighborhood and a commitment to highlighting the best qualities of our charming, older home allowed us to remain confident that everything would be taken care of back in Wisconsin. Becki, in particular, brings incredible warmth and humor to her role, and as a team, the human touch they instill provides ample peace of mind. When we received the great news about our home purchase, the resolution was swift, succinct -- and best of all -- satisfactory. We truly appreciate their guidance.
– Thomas and Mary Rozwadowski
Becki and Rich, I want to thank you for the way you handled the sale of my mother's home in DePere. It was a thing of beauty !! From the first call to the final sale you both demonstrated the highest level of professionalism. Rich, I especially liked how you helped come up with a price. In these difficult times for the housing industry you put together a recommendation that was based on our goals and the reality of the markets. You had a number of potentially well qualified buyers for our property and you successfully got an offer within a day. In the process of completing the sale we found a couple of problems with the house that needed to be taken care of. You jumped right in and got them resolved immediately. I also liked doing the inspection at the beginning of the process, it minimized the chance of the sale falling through. As we moved through the closing process, Becki handled the administrative processes smoothly and resolved the typical kind of issues that arise in this selling environment. You kept us informed every step of the way. That was important to us. I would be glad to recommend The Starrys to anyone entering the market.
– Tom Krautkramer
I had moved to the Green Bay area over a year ago starting with an apartment not knowing how my new job would work out but after a few months I knew I was staying at my job and Green Bay, so I started looking at houses. My brother is a realtor in Minnesota, so I was bugging him with questions and its a little far for him to come here for a weekend to show me houses. So he started looking for a realtor I could work with, and that's when he told me to contact Rich and Becky Starry with Shorewest. I finally met with them and right away I knew they were the perfect choice for the home buying process. Rich and Becky were always there when I had a question and being new to the home buying process they taught me the process and was very patient with me. I am very pleased my brother referred me to the Starry's, they made the whole process painless! I will most definitely will use them as my realtor's again in the future and will recommend them.
– Austin Bretzel
We just wanted to take the time to say thank you for helping us purchase our new home. As a business owner myself I can appreciate the work Rich puts in. It often goes unnoticed or unappreciated. Well Rich it didn't go unnoticed by us. We appreciated your timeliness in your responses and your professionalism in keeping us updated on the process. It was extremely clean and easy. You're patience with us and knowledge really helped us tremendously along the way. We just want you to know that we are very grateful for all you did for us. Happy to refer you to anyone looking to buy or sell. Plus your assistant is pretty good to God bless and thanks again
– Scotty & Nicole Smith
Hello Rich, Sorry this note comes past due, but things have been busy (in a good way)! Megan and I wanted to thank you so much for your patience and guidance you provided during our home purchasing process. We appreciate your flexiblitiy and availablity when it came to showings, paperwork, and providing quick answers to the numerous questions. Both her and I are extremely happy to be living in our home and a large portion of that is thanks to you! It was nice having someone reliable who helped advocate for our needs during crunch times. If we are every looking to buy/sell again, we will be in touch with you and Becki again!! Please let Becki know that her help is also greatly appreciated!
– Miranda & Megan
People keep asking me 'what did you do to sell your house so quick?? do you have any advice??' my answer is 'yes. here's my advice... Call Rich and do what he says!' :)
– Julie & Jeremy Schnurer
We were able to sell our home in eight days! People ask me how we sold it so quickly. I tell them it was because The Starrys are awesome. Their honesty and insightfulness about real-estate, as well as their excitement and dedication, was exceptional. This helped us trust their advice as they guided us through the sale of our home. Considering how stressful the process of selling and buying a home can be in today's market, selling our home was made very easy. And the transition out of our old house and into our dream home was smooth. Although, consecutive closings on the same day is not for everyone, we were able to accomplish this because of their expertise. Thank you forever Rich and Becki!
– Bill & April Sauer
Thank you so much for all your help, guidance and encouragement during an extremely difficult and stressful time. When our first buyer quit her job a few weeks after the accepted offer, I was very disappointed and very nervous that it could happen again. The two of you were so encouraging and optimistic about moving forward and getting another buyer. I always felt I was in good hands and was being well represented. The second buyer came quickly and the house closed shortly after. It was wonderful working with such a dedicated and hard working team. I will highly recommend you to anyone looking to buy or sell. You guys are awesome.
– Marian Yassin
Rich was able to sell our house for us in a short period of time for the full asking price. You can't ask for more than that! We had tried unsuccessfully to sell our house in the past with a different realtor. This time Rich made it look easy! He also helped us purchase a new house that we absolutely love! He made sure we were kept informed throughout the process and was easy to contact if we had questions, even while we were out of the country as the final negotiations were taking place. We would definitely recommend Rich to anyone!
– Dumoulin Family
Working with the Starry's made the selling of our previous home and buying of our new house an easy, fun and exciting experience for our family!!! Rich spent several hours with us as we scoured the Howard area for a house that would be our 'forever' home and this past May we found it! From that point forward everything just fell into place. Rich and Becki are so professional and carry through with every single detail of this process. There wasn't one single intricacy that was left undone! To add an extra bit of excitement to our experience, our house sold in 45 minutes!!!! Yes, 45 minutes. It went live on-line, had it's first showing 45 minutes later and that was it---SOLD! Thank you Rich and Becki for everything you've done to make our 'forever' home buying process so enjoyable. We will highly recommend your services to any of our family and friends looking to have a professional, exciting and pleasurable home buying and selling experience!!
– The Hansons
We very much enjoyed our experience with the Starry team. Rich was extremely flexible in meeting times that worked with our schedule and the closing went very smoothly. We are very happy with our new house - it is perfect for our entire family. I think we will be happy here for many years but will always keep the Starry's in mind should real estate need arise.
– Troy & Sara Anderson
We contacted Rich Starry as the listing agent on a house in East De Pere. That house had already sold, so Rich directed us to another house that was only 4 blocks away, knowing we wanted to live in this area. We really liked the house, but asked that Rich show us another house we were interested in. Although Rich was not the listing agent on that house, he did not push us toward the one he had listed. In the end we chose the house listed by Rich. This really proved to our advantage in that we were able to get timely answers from the seller. We can't say enough about Rich! He was friendly, professional, and helpful. He was very involved throughout the whole process, from the showings to the inspection to the closing. This is our 3rd home we've purchased and by far this is the best experience we've had. We are certain it was because of Rich. Thanks so much! !
– Jon & Kaya Seidl
Rich and Becki Starry sold my home in De Pere in four days, a rare occurrence in today's market. Their professionalism shown in every aspect of the sale, from determining a listing price to handling the closing. They know the market. They pay attention to the details, and they deliver on their promises. Every question I had was answered promptly. They took good care of me. I would recommend them to anyone.
– Arlene Douglas
'In route to moving a family member from one residence to another, we came upon a beautiful home that reminded us of a cozy European cottage. Not even being in the market to purchase our first home, we knew that this was a home to not pass up on. Upon making a phone call to inquire about the property, Rich Starry was able to meet us the next day for a walk through. Rich was informative, easy-going, down to earth, honest, and trustworthy. Within 3 days of finding a lender, we were ready to write an offer on our first home. From the beginning, Rich was working with both the buyer and the seller. Knowing what both sides wanted, he was able to get us an accepted home offer within an hour! Rich and Becki Starry are wonderful realtors to work with and are highly recommended! You can't go wrong working with them!'
– Christopher Kane & Ashley Zenefski
We hired the Starrys to sell our home as the real estate market bottomed out due to the economic recession. Despite the difficult market conditions, they were able to complete the deal in a very short time frame. We attribute this to their strong marketing of our home and their brand identity. We also appreciated the different ideas and thought process that each of them brought to the table. We would not hesitate to utilize the talents of the Starrys and the whole Shorewest team in the future, and would recommend them as either a seller or buyer. Ultimately, it took us longer to write this testimonial then it did for Rich and Becki to sell our home!
– Paul & Molly Martzke
We are so glad we chose The Starrys. We were worried about trying to sell our house in this market, and you helped us set just the right listing price so that we got a lot of viewings and the full price offer we needed, quickly! Thank you also for the peace of mind looking after our place and helping us manage the home sale from out of town. You were a huge help!
– Louise Clemency
You were brilliant! We were in a really difficult situation, being so far from Green Bay. But from the start we felt we were in good hands. You gave us great advice on what to get fixed and to have an inspection and report before we put the house on the market, and you helped us find the right people to get those things done. We were really impressed that you kept and eye on the house and even ensured the pool was kept sparkling and that you sorted out problems that arose in the middle of winter! In a terrible market you managed to get an extraordinary number of potential buyers through the door, you kept us informed throughout and you found us that one perfect buyer. The energy and commitment you showed, and the efficient way you dealt with everything, including the tricky business with our family Trust, were just wonderful. Thank you so much, Rich!
– Meyer Trust
We want to thank you for all you did in getting our house sold. The advice on improvements, getting people in to do fix ups after we left town and of course all the paperwork. In spite of the lousy market, our house is sold and we even managed a modest profit. Thank you very, very much. This is a great load off our minds. We know several people who put their house up before us and are still waiting for that one buyer to come along. Thankfully, ours did and we know that you were key in making that happen.
– Charlie & Ann Butters
When it became time to sell our mother's house & we needed a realtor, the first thing we thought about was 'who did we know'? We immediately thought of Rich & Becki Starry since they are friends & we go back to childhood. Although we realize it's often not a good idea to mix business with family or friends, we still decided to go with them. We could not have been happier. We had the house priced right & were lucky to sell it very quickly even in today's economy. We were treated very professionally & were kept informed throughout the entire process. We highly recommend the Starry's whether selling or purchasing a home.
– Doug Klimek, Tom Klimek, Dawn Slugg
We first heard about Rich and Becki Starry through my parents who worked with the Starrys to sell my grandparents home. They were very impressed with their knowledge base, professionalism, and helpfulness (and so were we). When we became serious about purchasing our first home we thought of the Starrys and felt that they would be a perfect fit for us. When we started working with Rich and Becki we discussed what we wanted in our first home and they listened. Not once did they show us a house that didn't meet our criteria. During the negotiation process Rich was awesome! He really stood up for us and what we felt was a fair deal. After the accepted offer Becki did a great job working with us and the lender to ensure that we met all of our deadlines and had everything set for closing day. We would recommend Rich and Becki Starry to anyone, especially first time home buyers - they really made the process less stressful and even fun. Thank you for all of your help - we love our new home and look forward to many happy memories there.
– Kaitlin Hasseler & Daniel Suehring
Most of the boxes are unpacked and our new home is starting to feel very comfortable! Thank you both for all of your hard work and professionalism. In the very beginning of the selling process,you told us that you would make it happen and you followed thru on your promise. Once we listed our home things went very quickly--almost too quickly! We appreciated all of your e-mails and phone calls in response to our many questions--never had to wait very long for a response and that was impressive! The entire process went very smoothly and we truely enjoyed working with you. Thanks again and stop in for a visit when you are in the neighborhood.
– Vickie & Richard Jonely
When we first called Rich we were extremely naive about the home buying process. When we met him, we instantly knew that he would take us through the process unscathed. He explained the entire procedure in terms we could understand. Every time we had a question or needed Rich he was always available. The best thing about Rich was that he made buying a home exciting, easy, and carefree. We would absolutely recommend Rich Starry to anyone looking for a home in the Green Bay area. He's the best!
– Eric & Laura Studee
THANK YOU for selling our home very quickly and negotiating the purchase of our new home. Selling a house, especially in today’s market, can be a frustrating experience. This is what we hear from other people, but did not experience working with you. Your confidence, years of experience and ultimate professionalism allowed us to sit back and know our home would be sold in a timely manner and without complications. We have highly recommended your The Starrys to our friends. I did, however, have to warn them about leaving cookies out at Open Houses. How many pounds did you gain selling our house Rich?! Again, thank you both so much.
– Dan & Linda Bertrand
Rich has helped us with several real estate transactions, but none as great as this last one. Rich found a home that was not on the active market, that he thought we would love and he was exactly right . It was an area of East DePere where we had always wanted to live. We were not looking for a home, but we looked at it and it was perfect. We put an offer in and then the hard work was to begin selling our current home. That turned out to be easier than writing the offer . Rich had it listed and we had a full price offer in less than 2 weeks. We recommend The Starrys to everyone , they are extremely knowledgeable, professional and have an extreme passion for their business.
– Bob & Jenny Gagan
From the moment we met Rich, we knew we had a realtor we could trust. His easy going and friendly personality helped us get a feel for the Green Bay communities. It was not ideal buying a house while living nearly four hours away, but Rich made it easy with his constant communication. Rich took the time to find out what we wanted and then worked tirelessly to find the home that fit our needs. We have and will continue to recommend Rich to both family and friends.
– Ted & Julie Collison
As a first time home buyer the home buying process seems daunting, but Becki and Rich helped me through the process by taking the time and being patient. They answered all my questions and gave me many helpful tips. I felt they were just an invested as I was in finding the perfect home for me. By them taking the process as seriously as I did, I truly felt like I was working with family
– Katie Henrich
'Just concentrate on packing, we will find you a house' – and they did in record time!! Time was of the essence and Rich and Becki delivered a service that was immeasurable. They took all the worries out of finding the perfect home for us. Once found, their vast knowledge of the business and professionalism carried through to closing. I cannot express enough, the gratitude felt for making our transition a smooth one.
– Susan Davis
Rich is a fabulous asset to the real estate market in Green Bay. He was patient with me - I started looking at homes and pestering him 9 months before I planned to buy and always put me first. He took me out multiple times and never grew impatient with me or my family and friends. He found exactly the home I didn't know that I always wanted! I felt like he was really working for me as a customer and would have gone to bat for me if needed. I didn't feel like he was trying to push me to buy a more expensive home but really wanted me to find the home of my dreams. I plan to use him if I ever move and refer all my friends in the area to him in the future.
– Tamara Lyday
Even though the paperwork was not complete, Rich found the buyer for our home before it was listed. (And then our home sold before the sign was in the yard). Rich’s understanding of the real estate market, along with instinct and a passion for success, made the sale of our home quick and effortless (for us). From the beginning, we felt Rich was genuinely motivated to sell our house, and not simply interested in holding the listing.
– Paul & Stephanie Gerlikovski
We cannot thank Rich and Becki Starry enough for all the work they put into finding us our perfect home. They always had our best interests in mind. They were absolutely fantastic Realtors to work with. They always returned our phone calls or emails promptly and made sure any questions we had were answered and explained in a manner we, as first time home buyers, would completely understand. They helped my father buy his home over 6 years ago and when my father told me to give them a call we listened and I am very glad we did. I would highly recommend them to any of my family or friends who are interested in looking for a home in this area. Very satisfied home buyers (all day)
– Jessica Teasley & Jarrett Brooks
The house sold the first day so we did not have a chance to see your marketing in action. What we did see was good communication by you, to us thru email or phone leading up to the closing. Being in Colorado we needed someone who would not drop the ball and make sure all financing, inspections and paper work was done on time leading up to the closing. Thanks again Rich. I would definitely recommend you to any friends in the Green Bay market looking to sell or buy a home.
– Bob & Linda Karcz
When we were looking to put our house on the market, we interviewed 3 realty companies to see who would fit our personalities best. We chose Rich & Becki Starry because they seemed to relate well to us as 'every day' people. They told us that pricing our house right the 1st time would be the key to selling it in a reasonable timeframe and they were right. Our house sold in less than 2 weeks. When it came time to look for a house we didn't have a lot time before our old house's closing. The Starry's made it easy to look at a lot of houses in a short amount of time with a very busy schedule. We found the house we wanted and they made the process of making an offer, getting a loan, and closing so smooth. We would, and have recommended them to our friends that are either buying or selling a home. Great job Starry's!!!
– Jesse & Kelly Pagel
As a first time home buyer there was a lot I didn't know about owning a home. Rich was there to answer my questions any time, no matter how small the question or how simple the answer. The process was always about me as a buyer. Rich doesn't just like his job, he loves it, and that's why I would recommend The Starrys to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.
– Kael Coleman
We had just started looking at open houses and met Becki. We found her to be very warm and personable, seeing me as an individual, not just a number. When we needed to put our home on the market we immediately thought of Becki... All in all, generally speaking , I feel we could have used any company, but we chose Becki due to her personalized, caring, and attention to detail. Becki is truly an asset to your organization.
– Tracy Hobbick
Becki and Rich are #1... They were always professional and are a great asset to your organization. We would recommend them to anyone!! Keep up the good work and thank you for making our purchase a great experience!!
– Dean & Nancy Jensen
We could not have been more pleased with our sales associates. Not only were they extremely professional, they listened to what we wanted and make showings regardless of the listing company. Not only that, we believe we may have made a lifelong friend. The Starry's were a joy to work with.
– Paul & Janice Sunderland
The Starrys were wonderful agents!! They were honest, helpful, on-time and available any time. Thank you for making our home purchase so enjoyable !!
– Todd & Blake Bierowski
The Starrys are very personable and professional agents. They return calls promptly and answer questions accurately. They have made this stressful transition much more manageable and have treated us like friends.
– Gaberiel & Debra Leis
I'm not easy to please when it comes to customer service, but I can honestly say that Becki provided the best service I've ever experienced. As a first time home-buyer Becki's knowledge and trust worthiness gave me confidence in making my decision to buy. She kept my stress level at a minimum and made everyone associated with me or the house feel at ease. I can't imagine anyone doing more or working harder for me than Becki, before, during, and after the sale.
– Dan Terrien
The Starrys were a pleasure to work with. I was busy living and working in another state, both of them listened carefully to my desires and emailed possible homes to me for months. When I came to Green Bay to look at homes our day was meticulously planned and pleasant. I found a home I love and never felt pressured by either Becki or Rich. After arriving, Becki invited me to dinner and introduced me to women in the community. I consider her my friend.
– Patricia Motycka
We recently purchased a home and worked with the Starrys. Our family could not have been treated any better than we were by Rich and Becki. The were extremely professional, honest and kind.... Many times they rearranged their schedules since we were driving a distance to look at homes in the Green Bay area. When we closed on our house, Becki presented us a gift to our new home. Needless to say, I was a little taken back and emotional. I said something to Becki that I truly believe. I told her that if the people we meet in Green Bay are half as friendly and welcoming as she and Rich have been, hen our family is very luck to be relocating to the area. Thanks for agents like The Starrys!!!
– Todd & Ann Sobrilsky
True honesty and more than just an agent... but felt like a friend, which made the process much easier to deal with...
– Andrew & Rebecca Vissers
We recently purchased a new home in Langlade Place and sold a home we were in for over 37 years. The move would have been more difficult if we had not had the guidance of The Starrys and Sue Hamer at Shorewest. Their expertise and attention to detail were welcome factors in the smooth transition. We thank all for their efforts on our behalf and heartily recommend that they be considered by anyone looking to make a change in homes....
– Bob & Joan Mott
Rich and Becki provided a positive experience to an unpleasant situation. It was time for us to move my mother to an assisted living facility and we knew that their market knowledge, suggestions and recommendations would help prepare us to market her house. Showings were steady and we had a full price offer and closed within 4 months in this struggling economy!! Two years ago we had the same positive experience when Marks mother had to move as well, and the Starrys sold her house. We knew the Starrys would provide the same professional and efficient service. We would highly suggest The Starrys for real estate services regardless of the situation.
– Mark & Sherri Stephany
In October of 2008, we listed our house for sale. Six months with a competing Realtor went by, 2 showings a week but no offers. We switched to Shorewest and Rich at that point. He came in, gave us great ideas to improve the selling appearance and gave us a proper price point. Our house sold with the very first showing Rich scheduled. Rich is knowledgeable and personable, very comfortable to work with, we thank the 'Starry' sky we went with Rich to sell our house.

I was a young, first-time homebuyer looking for an inexpensive starter home when I first connected with The Starrys. While looking for a buyer's agent, I was concerned about choosing an agent who would appreciate my business and provide me the same attention they would a more affluent client. Although my transaction was certainly on the smaller side, both Rich & Becki were always eager to help guide me through the home-buying process. They made me feel like I was their only client by promptly updating me on any developments and following up after the closing. Buying a first home is very exciting but can also be very scary if you're not in good hands. I would absolutely recommend Rich & Becki to any other first-timer or experienced homeowner.
– Ellen Baker
Rich Starry is personable, precise, and hardworking. He was exactly what we needed with such a large move from Connecticut to Wisconsin. He was instrumental in assisting us in picking the right area for our new home by finding out exactly what our families priorities and hobbies were. He was knowledgeable regarding community activities, schools, and sports. Once we picked the right area, finding a beautiful home was easy. He assisted us with every step of the process, including contract negotiations, home inspection, financing, and the closing. I always felt like he had our best interest at heart and would recommend him to friends because he is so thorough. He makes the 'business' side of real estate look easy.... it's as if you're working with a friend! Rich..... thanks for all you've done.... you truly are a rare find!
– Richard & Renee Butrym
I would summarize the Starrys in three words: efficient, effective, and understanding. We saw our first house with them on April 1 and closed on a house on April 30. Rich quickly grasped what we were looking for in a house (and, conversely, what we did not like) which saved us from fruitless viewings. Once we found a house we liked, the negotiations and paperwork were handled very efficiently. After we went to contract, an inspection problem surfaced. The Starrys quickly lined up contractors to survey the problem and provide cost estimates, and renegotiate the purchase price accordingly. I would unhestitatingly recommend them to any buyer.
– Jim & Sue Workman
The Starry’s were wonderful agents for us. They valued our questions and concerns and found the perfect place to meet our wants and needs. It was our first house and they effectively and efficiently brought us through the process so we were comfortable, understanding, and able to close the deal quickly. Since we are renting the place out for a few months, the Starry’s have continued to be a resource to assist us with the details of the purchase. I highly recommend the Starry’s to anyone looking for a home, or looking to sell their home. They epitomize the personal and professional agent anyone desires to make buying, or selling a house comfortable. We now not only have our first house, we have a home.
– Luke & Liz Anderson
Our house sold in seven days with Rich and Becki Starry. When we told our friends no one could believe it. The formula for today’s challenging market? Provide a great product in an outstanding location priced fairly. And make sure you are aligned with the Stars. In this case Rich and Becki Starry, an absolutely great real estate team. Rich and Becki were intimately knowledgeable of our location and our target buyer. They provided frank details that helped us prepare for the sale. And most importantly, the Starry Team provided clear, concise and constant communication. Thanks Rich and Becki on a job more than well done.
– Rick and Mary Jo Jelinski
Rich and Becki Starry are fantastic real estate agents that were helpful from the first time we met through the time the property sold. As an out of town seller, it was imperative that we had agents who were willing to go the extra mile in a number of areas, including but not limited to: meeting and making arrangements with local contractors/appraisers/inspectors in order to facilitate the sales process. Rich and Becki handled all of that for us and we are tremendously grateful for their efforts and would recommend them to anyone seeking to buy or sell property in the Green Bay area. They are true professionals in every sense of the word.
– Eric S. Zufelt, Esq.
Thank you Rich & Becki! You made the process of selling a home a lot less stressful. The team support that you provided was invaluable. We always had someone we could reach with any question or issue. We travel frequently so it was helpful to have a team that communicated with us like we were next door. We were never in doubt about the status of our home, even when we were in Florida for several weeks. You counseled, made suggestions, outlined choices we should consider, but in the end let us make the decisions that helped to sell our home. Thanks for the outstanding support!
– Charlie & Ellen Parke
It was a pleasure working with Rich and Becki Starry. They are very friendly, honest, and knowledgeable people. We were looking for a home in the Howard-Suamico area and the Starrys helped us find the perfect house in a beautiful neighborhood. They were always available when we needed them. Rich and Becki worked around our schedule which was very helpful. They always answered our questions and gave their own suggestions to help make our buying decision. We would definitely recommend Rich and Becki to anyone searching to buy a new home or to sell a home. Thank you for everything! We love our new house and neighborhood!
– Trevor & Michelle Vanderlois
From the moment we met Becki and Rich, we knew we were in good hands. They are honest, friendly, straight-forward people who share their advise and expertise in a non-judgmental way. Even in a difficult real estate market, we were able to sell our house in 3 months because of the advise and tips Becki and Rich shared with us. Whenever we had a question, Becki and Rich always returned our calls or answered our emails the same day. We had an open house approximately every other weekend, and either Becki or Rich would call us shortly afterwards to let us know what kind of activity we had, and any comments the potential buyers made. Becki and Rich were also very helpful when it came to buying our current house. They had many helpful tips and suggestions for us. They were able to see things objectively at a time when it was easy to get lost in the process. All the details were taken care of. We trust Becki and Rich and would definitely choose them if we ever decide to move again!
– Scott & Joan Raplinger
We found a house we just loved in Allouez..... That was the easy part, now we had to sell our home in a slower market.. Talk about stress!! Rich & Becki handled all aspects like true professionals. Rich stressed pricing our home to beat the competition, so along with that and the excellent job they did marketing our home we had it sold much quicker than we expected. THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!!!
– Bob & Jenny Gagan
In my recent search for a new home I stumbled upon a personable duo in Rich and Becki Starry with Shorewest. I had not signed with a realtor at the time to help in my search and they provided me with just the right amount of assistance without being too pushy. Once they mentioned the rebate program they were in the process of implementing with Prevea, they reeled me in. I enjoyed working with both Rich and Becki as they were professional and helpful and did their best to be available when it was convenient for me. I would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone but especially fellow Prevea employees. You not only have great Realtors to work with, you get a bonus back, just for being a Prevea employee!
– Tracey Thiry
Moving can be a very stressful time for any family and more so when the move is to unknown community. Rich and Becki took the time to help us learn about the community, different areas and neighborhoods first which made us feel very comfortable. They provided us with the information to make what we feel was the right decision for our future in Green Bay. Having purchased a home that was in need of major renovation, Rich and Becki were a great source for finding the qualified trades required to complete the project. More importantly well after the transaction we consider them to be friends.
– Mike and Sue Watson
We appreciated the Starry's knowledge, experience and professionalism from the Market Analysis to the Closing. Thank You.
– Wally and Karen Collins
I can't say enough about the Starry Team... We have personally known Becki for a long time but that is not the reason we went with the Starry's. Once you meet with them, you will understand and seek their services as well. The commitment to their profession, personal service and knowledge of the market is incredible. Not only do you have one outstanding realtor working for you, but you have two. Twice as much visibility and assistance. 'They are there for YOU buying or selling' Outstanding team work!
– Kym Rappert
Very knowledgeable and professional without pretense or stuffiness. Definitely felt like you were looking out for our best interests. Personal attention and help with the many details of making an offer and staying with us through the process of paperwork once the offer had been accepted. You made us feel like more than clients.. like friends and neighbors!
– Jim and Carmen Cucinello
It was such a pleasure working with Becki and Rich Starry when purchasing our first home. It felt like dealing with family members. They are so kind and caring. I think I still get follow up cards making sure we are still happy with our home. That adds such a personal touch.
– Ann Nader
Having just moved to the Green Bay area from La Crosse my wife and I were undecided as to where we wanted to live. Rich and Becki were patient and understanding as we looked from the Suamico area all the way south to Appleton. When we finally found the house we loved they worked with me over the phone while I was out of town and were flexible with my wife's schedule to get the offers, counter-offers and all the fun stuff taken care of as quickly as possible. Being first-time home buyers we were happy that Rich and Becki took the time to explain the process and help us through everything. Thanks for everything, we really love our new home!
– Tim and Deanna Lindner
We truly appreciate the hard work and dedication both Rich and Becki Starry put into helping us find our dream home! Their exceptional personal service made us feel extremely comfortable throughout the entire process. Both were very patient with us during our extensive search due to a job relocation and in the end Rich proved to have outstanding negotiating skills. The process could have been stressful without their considerable guidance, using humor, integrity and diligence to move us along. We would not hesitate to use their services again and will continue to highly recommend them......they are an excellent team to work with!
– Jason and Kelly Taege
We relocated from lower Michigan to Green Bay so that my husband could take a job with KI. Rich Starry helped us with this process from driving us around to get acquainted with the area, educating us on the area and the resources that were available, coordinating our double move and ultimately buying our dream home. He has been very patient, informative and resourceful through the whole process and our endless questions. Moving to a new town can be very stressful and Rich helped us every step of the way. I recommend him to anyone who is considering a move to the Green Bay area.
– Shawn and Moira Green
Rich and Becki were fantastic to work with! We were new to Green Bay, due to a job transfer and Rich and Becki were wonderful in helping us identify various communities that would be ideally suited for our family. They matched us very well with the neighborhood and home we eventually purchased. In addition, they were strong advocates for us, without jeopardizing the sale, when we were buying the home. Due to their preparation, the closing was very smooth. Surprisingly, we needed to call on Rich and Becki only two short years later as another job transfer would take us out of the state. Unfortunately, the real estate market had taken a severe downturn and we were very concerned about getting our house sold. Rich and Becki were outstanding in marketing the home. They not only worked hard for us, but they both provided much comfort to us as we were anxious throughout the process. Within six months, we had our house sold in one of the worst real estate markets in a long time. We believe this was due to Rich and Becki's fabulous work. Given their level of excitement when we sold our home, it was clear that they had a deep concern for us as their client. Rich and Becki are truly a team that will work extremely hard for you. As both a buyer and seller, we experienced the sincere dedication they had as they were with us every step of the way. No one will add more value to the home buying or selling process than Rich and Becki. We are very grateful to Rich and Becki for all they did during a turbulent time for our family.
– Paul and Jami Ross
Friend referred us to Rich and Becki when he heard that our family would be relocating to the Green Bay area, and we couldn't be more glad that he did. Relocating your family from one state to another can be a very stressful time, and the case was no different for us this past summer. With all that is involved in relocating to a new state - selling an existing home, each of us changing jobs, and finding a new school for our young daughter, we were lucky to find realtors in Rich and Becki that understood that finding a new home needed to be a seamless and enjoyable experience. Because of their strong collective experience working with corporate relocation programs, they were able to guide us through a potentially confusing and frustrating process. They worked around our hectic schedules and didn't hesitate to show us 15-20 homes in one day because one day when that was all that we could spare at the time. We were really impressed with their vast knowledge of the Green Bay area, including property values, school district rankings, and entertainment options for couples and families. Most importantly, Rich and Becki are honest people that treated like we were the only clients they had. They took the time to understand what was truly important to us in a new home, and presented us with regular listing updates for homes that fit what we were looking for. They didn't try to 'sell' us on every home we saw, rather they were quick to point out when the market value of a given home was below the asking price. Now how many realtors would do that? The biggest testament to their work in getting to know is that the home we fell in love with and ultimately purchased was one that we never called out as one we wanted to see. Rather, it was one that Rich and Becki suggested we take a look at because they believed that it fit us. They were right, and we now have our dream home as a result of their efforts. Thanks Rich and Becki! We'll definitely refer our friends and family to Rich and Becki for all their realty needs.
– Kevin and Molly Jauquet
Can't say enough praises for the way Becki and Rich Starry worked to help us find our dream house. We were in a situation where a different realtor was giving us the run around and not getting back to us in a very timely manner. We were under a major time restraint because our house was already sold and we needed a place to purchase. Just as soon as I was in touch w/ Becki, by the next morning, Rich had sent me over 30 houses to view. By the end of that day he had set up 7 houses to view for that Saturday!!! It took our other realtor until that Friday just to get back to me about what we needed. We knew what we needed to do and pursue every house and advantage we had with going through Rich and Becki. My husband liked having Rich's point of view while Becki and I would look at things in a much different matter. We ended up finding our dream (and current) house on the first day and by the end of the following week we had and accepted offer!! Thank you Rich and Becki for making all of our families dreams come true!!!
– Chris and Kristy Kabara
We would highly recommend, and have, Becki and Rich Starry to buy or sell a house with. They exceeded our expectations of an agent. They helped in all aspects of the buying process from our initial realtor tour to helping us coordinate our physical move. At all times they were thorough, patient, and professional and, of course, fun too! We appreciated their hard work of mapping out the most appropriate houses to look at based on OUR needs (& providing the necessary tools/packets), house hunting efficiently and not wasting our time, providing advice and expertise in negotiating the contract, assisting us with inspections and coordination of a contractor since we were not local, and finally recommending a quality mover and making sure it went smoothly. If we move again we would use Becki and Rich without a doubt.
– John and Lisa Hutto
We want to thank you for the excellent service on the sale of our home on Lost Dauphin and purchase of our town home at Arbor Landing-all in record time! This is the second transaction provided by the Starry Team and we have been pleased with our results. Continue your outstanding customer service and success.
– Jim and Georgia Kneeland
I'm extremely satisfied and thankful to Rich for helping me and my children with a difficult transition. There is a difference between a house and a HOME and I am so happy with my HOME! Life is good. THANK YOU RICH!
– Heidi Simon
We built our home 41 years ago and after our children left looked over the years at new condo developments and just couldn't find the 'right one'. Sometimes it was location, etc. After seeing the Baird's Condos they were everything we were looking for. We signed papers to sell our house, it went on the internet on Wednesday, Thursday someone made an appointment to see it, came back Saturday and Sunday by 6:00 P.M. , 4 days later our home was sold!!! Of course we were hesitant to leave a home of 41 years and try condo life but our house sold very quickly and now we are loving our new lifestyle. The Starry's are a wonderful team and helped make the transition especially easy by keeping in touch with us every step of the way. Thanks again to the terrific team at Shorewest.
– Bill & Karen Magaurn
It was a long process but I am extremely grateful that I had your support along the way. It was more like working with FAMILY or FRIENDS than a Realtor. From the start you were honest and upfront. You explained the process very thoroughly and at 'my level' so I could understand the process better. I have passed your name to friends already and can't praise you enough! If I move again 'The Starrys' will be my first call....
– Angel Bolwerk
The recruitment staff at KI has worked with Rich for years when relocating employees to the Green Bay area. We trust Rich to show our candidates around town, and have found that his professionalism and knowledge is superior. We've gotten great feedback on the comfortable way in which Rich treats our people. Most recently I had the opportunity to work with both Rich and Becki in the purchase of my new home. I felt very at ease knowing that they were taking care of all the little things that go along with selling and buying a home, and the closing went off without a hitch. The best part was receiving the rebate check from them after the closing which allowed me to purchase all those extras that are needed when buying a new home. The Starry's are the best and I strongly recommend them!
– Julie Frelich
From the first time we met Rich and Becki Starry, we felt they were very approachable and reliable realtors. Whether it was a spur-of-the-moment house showing or a change in housing needs, Becki and Rich were always responsive and willing to do whatever it took to find us the perfect house. For them, the realty business is all about focusing on the customer, and this was evident to us time and time again. Thanks to Rich and Becki, we are now in our first home, and we absolutely love it! We would highly recommend the Starry's services to anyone looking to buy or sell.
– Emma Frank and Mike Slowinski
We love Rich and Becki Starry and we'd recommend them to anyone. Becki and Rich helped us buy our home in Green Bay, and they sold it for us when we relocated back to Minnesota. They go above and beyond what one would expect from a Realtor. We had to move before closing on our house in Green Bay, and they made sure that everything that needed to be done was completed to ensure a smooth closing. They are detail oriented and very professional. They helped us navigate through difficult decisions by providing data to help us make good decisions. They work hard - and behind the scenes - to ensure that you get your house sold.
